Nutrient Booster: Cottage Cheese

One great way to up the nutrition of your toast is to add protein-packed cottage cheese. Daisy brand Low-Fat Cottage Cheese has four ingredients and provides 13 grams of protein (26% of your daily value) with only 90 calories per ½ cup serving!  When choosing a bread for your toast, make sure to pick a whole wheat version that’s high in fiber (aim for 5 grams of fiber per slice).  The fiber of the bread combined with the protein of the cottage cheese will be sure to keep you satisfied.

Which Cottage Cheese is best?

When buying cottage cheese, be sure to check your label for ingredients. We used Daisy Brand cottage cheese because the only ingredients are cultured skim milk, cream, salt and Vitamin A palmitate. For more information on cottage cheese, visit the Daisy Brand website.  We whipped up a few of our favorite Cottage Cheese Toast ideas! The possibilities are endless, check out a few of our favorites for some inspiration!
